The Fundamental AI Research (FAIR) team at Meta, Facebook’s parent company, has released Big Language Model Meta AI, a new “state-of-the-art” artificial intelligence (AI) language model (LLaMA).

According to CEO Mark Zuckerberg, the model will be made available to academics and will aid scientists and engineers as they explore new applications for artificial intelligence.

“We’re launching LLaMA, a new cutting-edge AI large language model meant to assist researchers progress their work,” Zuckerberg said in a Facebook post.

“LLMs have shown great potential in text production, dialogues, summarizing textual information, and more difficult tasks like solving mathematical theorems or predicting protein structure.”

Artificial intelligence advancements have become a priority for both large tech corporations and startups, with significant language models like Microsoft’s Bing AI, OpenAI’s ChatGPT, and Google’s unannounced Bard AI powering apps.

However, Meta’s LLM varies from previous models in other aspects, including its scale and availability to researchers, according to Meta.

AI LLAMA Will Include Between 7 and 65 Billion Parameters
